Arsenal’s Premier League title ambitions suffered a huge blow in the hands of their London rivals West Ham United. The Hammers came back from two goals down to finish the game with a 3-3 scoreline, thanks to a hat-trick from Andy Carroll.
In what turned out to be a thrilling game, Arsenal raced to a two goal lead before throwing it away to an excellent hat-trick from West Ham’s Andy Carroll. Laurent Koscielny helped salvage a point for the Gunners, scoring the equaliser in the 70th minute
However, both sets of fans were frustrated. West Ham had made a fantastic comeback and should have taken the 3 points, while Arsenal threw away a two goal lead and any hopes of challenging for the title.
It was an epic match at Upton Park and Twitter reacted in shock and awe. Check out the best tweets below.

Teacher: What does the law of gravity say?
Me: What goes up must come down.
Teacher: Can you give me an example?

Need a major rebuilding. Need a new defender and a striker. New medical staff, new shareholders. And most of all, a new manager. #WHUARS
